Took my time i tryed to do it the right way . following the receipe.....

I used a special imported paint specially for tail lights that i bought from a performance shop , the light at night is perfect and no shadow/ oversprayed spots.

it took me 2 hours ( wet sanding, paiting , clear coat )
then next day i used a clay bar to make the surface smoother ( 10 minutes)

Looks really nice, how much would you charge to repeat the procedure
I'm not professional and i dont want to take bussiness away from john Boy but i can get you the right paint and teach you how to do it.
It is impossible to mess up with this paint... and even without the clear coat, the finishing is smooth and great.
I will check the prices for it from the shop and how many cans i can get at once.

Ok I went back to the place i got the paint from and they had 1 can left and Im keeping it just in case .

He sold me for $ 25.00 dollars but he does not know when he is going to get more of this.



I found a place the sells it online but they charge 38.95 for the can.
The package looks a little bit different from mine but it's the same brand " AUG"

3 nuts hold the tailight in place . you have to remove the bulb holder assembly ( two tabs , one per side) and you are all set. very easy.

They didn't believe you!? :D It looks pro thats why! Thanks but I think you should keep the can just in case buddy. BUT, do you have any left in the old can? I was thinking of trying to tint my side markers. :weirdo:
